Pizza herb bread

I am not a big fan of pizza and if we eat one I prefer to prepare it with a lot of vegetables. But with pizza dough you can also make a tasty herb roll. Combine with a delicious soup, just rip off some pieces of bread (instead of cutting slices). Here at home the last crumb disappears … With the filling you can vary endlessly fe. with dried tomatoes or cheese.

Servings 1 bread


  • 1 pizza dough rectangular form
  • 40 gr basil leaves fresh leaves
  • 20 gr thyme fresh
  • 20 gr chives fresh
  • 20 gr pine nuts
  • 20 gr grated parmesan
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 4 tblspoon olive oil
  • 6 nuts up to your choise
  • 1 egg only the egg yolk
  • pepper and salt


  • Put the basil, thyme, garlic, oil, pine nuts and cheese in the cutter and mix to a homogeneous mass. Note, not too long because the heat of the cutting blades can cause a bitter taste. Cut the chives into fine rings.
  • Open the pizza dough and spread with the herb pesto. Sprinkle the sliced chives on top. Roll up the dough (along the long side) into a roll. Carefully cut the roll in the middle. Braid the two halves together and place the dough in a baking dish. Brush with a bit of egg yolk and place the nuts on top. Bake 35-40 minutes at 180º in a preheated oven.


This bread does not immediately belong to the most healthy or nutrient-rich variety. But every now and then you can also eat what you call “comfort food”. A pizza base is rich in carbohydrates, fats and often sugars. The herbs will provide the healthy touch, even if it is a small one 😉
